Disabled veterans give out free meals in Bridgend

Two disabled veterans from Bridgend have given away a thousand free meals in a 'random act of kindness'.

Tom Weaver and Phillip Loveday saved their pensions to put £1,500 towards the food. That donation was matched by a local business.

The pair say they wanted to thank the people of the town for helping them stay independent.
